5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Loved the view and the service. So accommodating . Had a very nice view of the ocean and the surroundings were very nice. The only suggestion I would make is that the pool deck is very slippery with or without shoes when it is wet. Had a great time with the staff they were wonderful people. Loved our stay

5/5 Excellent

The experience was fabulous

Hotel staff were pleasant and very helpful. Room was great with a nice view of the surrounding area. Pool was perfect for lounging or swimming laps. Breakfast was very nice. Waking up to singing birds was a nice change.

Pros: Everything

Cons: No improvements needed

Location: Location great

A real gem

Wonderful , absolutely wonderful. Loved the homemade breakfasts each morning, air conditioned cabin, beautifully groomed surroundings and pool. Lots of birds of color. The manager and assistants were always visible and willing to chat. The view is exceptional. Will definitely stay here again if it is available

Great place to bird watch and sunsets.

Amazing place to watch birds and sunsets! The staff, Jeffers and Orlando were exceptional and we enjoyed breakfast every morning in the common area watching birds. Don't forget to walk around the property grounds and explore. That said, we only had hot water one day we were there. We did notify staff and they tried to fix it but it never happened. I do not enjoy cold showers.

Pros: The views. Ask Jeffers to take you bird watching on the property. Educational and fun!

Cons: Hot water for the shower! The toiletries and coffee were replaced only once. Add a refrigerator in the room.
